Country music artist Jerrod Niemann will be the headliner Friday, Aug. 30, during the Naperville Jaycees Last Fling celebration over Labor Day weekend in downtown Naperville.

Niemann's debut album, "Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury," landed the No. 1 spot in 2010 delivering the platinum-selling No. 1 hit "Lover, Lover" and the Top 5 single "What Do You Want."

His newest album, "Free The Music," is a journey through a variety of musical styles, with each of the 12 songs written or cowritten by Niemann to pay homage to the instrumental sounds that helped shape the country music genre.

Niemann also has written songs for country stars such as Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton, Lee Brice, John Anderson and Jamey Johnson.

His concert is scheduled to begin at 8:30 p.m. on the main stage near the base of Rotary Hill along Naperville's Riverwalk.

Tickets will go on sale soon with pricing and sales locations to be announced. For details, visit www.lastfling.org.

Fest organizers already have said the Goo Goo Dolls will perform at 8 p.m. Aug. 31 and Collective Soul, an Atlanta-based rock band, will perform at 8 p.m. Sept. 1.

The annual Labor Day weekend celebration includes a business expo on Jackson Avenue, a carnival, the main stage, a free entertainment stage and Family Fun Land on the grounds of Naper Settlement.

The fest also will offer a meet-and-greet with a Disney star yet to be named and a dunk tank to soak local elected officials, along with the iconic Bed Races featuring a team of "Nuns on the Run."
